Life into art

GENRE: Non-Fiction & Life Writing
The Hurst

As fiction and non-fiction continue their evolving relationship,most recently as the kind of ‘autofiction’ practised by Rachel Cusk (among others), the question of how to turn life into art becomes ever more interesting. This course is for writers who wish to address truth, fact or non-fiction from their own lives or another’s. We will focus on technical and creative opportunities and challenges in structuring, writing and selling memoir. For writers of all levels, this course will provide invaluable and inspiring ways of seeing and writing about life.

Single room price: £760

Grants are available to help with the course fee
